These easy low sodium Roasted Root Vegetables are warm, crisp, and have the easiest and most delicious dressing.  I’m a HUGE fan of homemade dressings- they transform anything you are cooking into something gourmet.  I have an easy low sodium vinaigrette dressing recipe here on this site, which is my go-to for salads!  While you can eat these veggies on their own, the bright tart dressing takes plain vegetables to the next level.

These roasted root vegetables with rosemary and thyme are one of our absolute, hands down, all time favorite meals! They’re my hubby’s #1 favorite, for sure.  We could eat this for a month straight and not get sick of it, they are that good!  This recipe is adapted from Yottam Ottolenghi’s Roasted Root Vegetables from his Plenty Cookbook, but I changed the dressing a bit to remove the added high-salt ingredients!

Low Sodium Sheet Pan Vegetables For a Healthy, Whole Dinner

This low sodium roasted vegetables with thyme and rosemary is the perfect sheet pan meal!  I love a good one pan meal, especially during these fall months when the weather starts to turn cooler. Cooking on a sheet pan is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  All the food gets spiced and roasted on a single pan, which makes cleaning up a breeze.

And the oven does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. Sheet Pan meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy low sodium sheet pan meals that are ready in no time!

  • Sweet Potato
  • White, Red, or Purple Potatoes – or a tricolor mix you can find at grocery stores. We grew about 30 lbs of these wonderful Adirondack Blue potatoes in our garden, which were perfect for this gorgeous dish.
  • Rosemary: I use fresh rosemary when I can find or grow it, or dried rosemary when I can’t. I crushed dried rosemary in a mortar and pestle to make it extra flavorful.
  • Carrots
  • Beets
  • Butternut Squash
  • Thyme – I used fresh thyme as we have it growing on our property, but this dried thyme would be a perfect substitute.
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Tomatoes
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Lemon Juice
  • Low Sodium Mustard – my easy mustard recipe is sodium & salt free, which makes it the perfect addition to this recipe. I got a fantastic low sodium whole ground mustard from Thrive Market that I am loving in this dressing. You could also add mustard powder instead.
  • Maple Syrup
